What Houzz contributors are saying:

Because air plants can grow on any material, you can get really creative when it comes to displaying them. Look for items you already have around the house to repurpose. For this terrarium I used white navy beans from the grocery store. They function like rocks but have a clean, modern look with a superlow price tag.

10. Air PlantsAir plants (Tillandsia) are super on trend at the moment, popping up in the hottest restaurants and bars and in displays at interior design expos. As they are called air plants, one of the most common myths is that they do not need to be given any water. Incorrectly, many people believe they can thrive on air or humidity alone and do not need any care. Air plants grow differently than most other houseplants as they are covered in suction scales that capture moisture. They can obtain water only if it is on their leaves through dew, rain and fog. As houseplants, they can thrive when misted regularly.

AIR PLANTS - bright filtered light is ideal; air plants placed in glass gloves: small globe: mist 1 spray/week; larger globes: mist 2 or 3 sprays/week; If you have dry air, mist 2x/week and submerge whole plant in container of water for 3 hours every one or two weeks; over misting can kill the plant; air plants in glass gloves should be placed away from direct sunlight

what a great, gr8, GR8 idea ... especially in our place which has UBER-southern sunlight from 7am thru well past 6pm daily! Additionally, I have significant bronchial & allergic (extrinsic & intrinsic) asthma, as does our eldest daughter, and our youngest daughter and my husband have chronic bronchitis! This is a fantastic idea to try to alleviate at least 'some' of the dryness from the ambient air ...

One for my room please!They're called 'air plants' and are extremely low maintenance. This one was made with spray,painters tape, beans (air plants can grow on any material) a glass bowl (make sure it's dry)a craft knife and a air plant. All you have to do is cover the part of the bowl you don't want sprayed ( the inside as well) with painters tape, then spray.do a second coating, then take off the tape and if anything's gone underneath ,scrape it off with the craft knife. Fill with beans,add air plant and bingo, you're done.

Materials: Glass bowl Gold spray paint (e.g KRYLON Metalic) Painter’s tape Craft knife Dried navy beans Air plant Air plants are easy to care for, but they still require some maintenance. Optimum locations are those with indirect sunlight. Some direct light is OK, but too much can make them dry out. Remove your air plants from the bean once a week to soak or rinse them in water. Spritz them with a spray bottle if they looking dry between soakings. Air plants can withstand periods of drought, but moisture helps them thrive.
